Have you been able to load a stable round in 140 or 150 gr. that consistently broke 3200fps while keeping a consistent p.o.i.?
I can het a 140 up there with good accuracy, 150 gets a harder. Runs about 3100 to 3150. I have gotten there with IMR 7828 with good accuracy. Can remember my load weight. I'm not at home.it does fill the case though and is at max pressure.

    Has anybody experimented with Burger .130 grain hunting bullets in the .270 WSM ? I'm wanting a good long range bullet that kills good.

    The Bergers have to be single fed in my rifle, so I have not used them for hunting purposes - I like to have a follow-up shot ready if needed (or if a herd of pigs comes out).

    I shot a decent buck with a Berger 130 in 270 WSM, It worked pretty well but it was only 303 yards.

    I bought some of the Hybrid classic Hunter Bergers that are out now and am going to try developing a load with those and hunt this fall with them.
